Sex After Obtaining Consent By False Promise To Marry Is Rape: SC

Image
It is significant to note that the Supreme Court most recently on April 9, 2019 has very strongly and sternly reiterated in a latest, landmark and laudable judgment titled Anurag Soni v. State of Chhattisgarh in Criminal Appeal No. 629 of 2019 (Arising out of SLP(Criminal) No. 618/2019) has reiterated in no uncertain terms that the consent for sexual intercourse obtained by a person by giving false promise of marriage would not excuse him from rape charges. All those men who dare to indulge in sex after giving false promise of marriage must now always bear it in mind that they will not be excused from rape charges as has been held in this most recent case. This commendable and notable ruling is bound to send a large and clear warning to all men that they cannot take women for granted and have sex with them by falsely promising to marry and then later reneging and escaping from all liabilities!

First and foremost, the ball is set rolling in this latest judgment authored by Justice …

May’s Brexit Deal Voted Down For The Third Time

Image
It has to be acknowledged candidly that in a huge jolt to the British Prime Minister Theresa May, the British lawmakers have outrightly rejected for a third time on March 29 her Brexit deal to avoid a chaotic no-deal divorce from the European Union (EU) thus sounding its probable death knell and leaving Britain’s withdrawal from the EU in turmoil on the very day it was supposed to leave the bloc. Thus we see that attempts by both Parliament and British Prime Minister Theresa May to clear the Brexit deadlock have floundered and failed miserably! There can be no denying or disputing it!
                                    Needless to say, MPs failed to back any of eight alternative options in a vote held on night of March 27, while Ms Theresa May’s pledge to make way for a successor in time for the next phase of Brexit negotiation did not cut ice and failed to persuade enough MPs to back her deal. It goes without saying that the decision to reject a stripped-down version of May’s divor…

SC Designates 37 Lawyers As Senior Advocates

Image
In a major and significant development, the Supreme Court which is the highest court in India has for the second time designated 37 lawyers as “Senior Advocates”. It goes without saying that it is a big honour for all these 37 lawyers to be designated as “Senior Advocates”. But then they deserve also as they have given their “prime years” in this noble profession of lawyer and that too right in the Apex Court itself and have certainly worked hard relentlessly to achieve it.
                                So, it goes without saying that they certainly deserve all the “applause and accolades” which they are now getting! We all as citizens of India also ought to know as to who all are these 37 lawyers who have been designated as “Senior Advocates”. They are as follows: - 1.Madhavi Goradia Divan 2.R. Balasubramanian 3.Anitha Shenoy 4.Aruneshwar Gupta 5.Jugal Kishore Tikamchand Gilda 6.Sanjay Parikh 7.Preetesh Kapur 8.Ashok Kumar Sharma 9.Deepak Madhusudan Nargolkar 10.Ajit Shankarrao Bhamse 11.Nikhi…

Kartarpur Meet Delayed Over Khalistan Activists

Image
It is nothing but stupidity of the highest order that politicians of India are not ready to learn any lessons from repeated betrayals by Pakistan and always indulges in day dreaming. This alone explains why inspite of so much of tension between India and Pakistan, India foolishly once again decided to trust Pakistan and go ahead with holding the second meeting with Pakistan to discuss modalities for the Kartarpur corridor! What did India get in return? Once again India was compelled to call off the meet with Islamabad on April 2 over legitimate concerns about the inclusion of pro-Khalistani activists in a Pakistani committee to facilitate Sikh pilgrims!

Why do our politicians behave so shamelessly and senselessly? Why do politicians expect that Pakistan will not play the Khalistan card to foment unrest in Punjab? Should Kartarpur corridor be opened at all under such circumstances? What has happened to our politicians?

Nations Must Make Gun Laws More Stricter

Image
It must be said with utmost regret that due to guns being easily available in various countries we see that the most ghastly, dastardly and cowardly attack on innocent people as we saw just recently in the New Zealand city of Christchurch on a mosque in which at least 50 people were killed and 50 injured in a mass shooting on March 15, 2019. All these precious lives would not have been lost if there were more stricter gun laws in place. Gun should not be given to any person whoever applies for it without proper verification!
                                   To put things in perspective, a 28-year-old man named Brenton Tarrant has been taken into custody and charged with murder. The shooter targeted two mosques in Christchurch: the Al Noor mosque where 42 people were killed mercilessly and another at the Linwood mosque where seven people died. The alleged shooter also live-streamed his dastardly and ghastly attack on social media, most gruesomely displaying how he entered the mosque…
